120 gal build
i will post pics soon
currently the stand is finished just got to cut holes and finish it, the sump is a rs-200 a mag 7 for the return,
the skimmer is a reef concepts 624 powered by mag 18. A rena 300 heater, the light is a sunpod 500.
Looking forward to pics. What are the live stock plans?
Nice, can't wait for the build.
what type of sand did you go with and how deep?
watch out for over heating problems with the large mag and your lights running. im fighting this issue now with a mag 24. i already have an external pump (which produces little to no heat) i just have to hook it up to my skimmer which i think im going to drill a hole into my sump to do so. just an option.
looking forward to pictures.
currently i am still finishing the stand i need to measure where the holes for the over flows that are going through the stand are going but i have run into an issue. the current issue is my one buddy has back issues and can not help me lift the tank back on the stand. got to wait a bit to wrangle another friend to do lift. as for heating issues i hope that the tank being in the basement close to a wall will help but if i need i will convert to external pump. the sand i am not sure thinking of indo pacific reef sand live though, about 2 inches deep.
it has taken me close to two years to put together all the stuff for the tank so i am trying not to rush to quickly now
as for livestock i have 77 pounds of beautiful live rock that that is packed full of shrimp, copepods and mussels, it came out of a guys 150 that he broke down, plus i have around 40 odd pounds of rock that will come out of my existing tank, to make up the rest i have something like 30 odd pounds of lace and base rock that i am going to put into the new system and hope that will do. i am keeping the 77 pounds of live rock at lfs they are wonderful to deal with.
as to pasfur question about live stock i am not sure, i was thinking of moving the betta, false percula, a scopas tang- the sail fin died, a sleeper head blennie and a sailfin along with assorted crabs, and snails as well as my corals but now i am unsure. so far the only corals i am moving is a duncanops, a large branching frogspawn. i am a little lost about the rest though. i am not sure i think this tank is goingto be less fish and more coral. i saw this great idea on reef central online about setting rock as 2 islands in the sand. i guess i am trying to say that i need some advice for livestock. i know i want one sps and that is a bird nest i think but i am mostly an lps guy. i like the frogspawns, torches and duncanops, i am done with goniapora, alveapora and elegence, my last elegence died and i am trying to save 2 alveopora but i bought some cheap lace rock that was full of copper, the 50 took a hard hit, lost 2 hammers an elegence and almost killed everything else in the tank things are not all that well. i am so much more careful now
sorry i got a little long about the copper soaked rocks i am so upset still about it, i want to stop going to other store but the a great frag selection..... so conflicted. i am not sure i am going to move any fish from the 50. new clean up crew, maybe 2 corals what do you suggest
the new pics are posted,
